2 Nigerian Brothers Arrested Over Gay Empire Actor’s Attack

The investigation into black actor Jussie Smollett’s account of being beaten in a racist, anti-gay attack took a sharp turn Friday when police announced the arrest of two black men they believe assaulted the “Empire” cast member.

At least one of the men worked on the TV show, police said.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said authorities had probable cause to believe the suspects committed assault and battery against Smollett. But they had not been charged as of Friday afternoon.

Guglielmi would not comment on a possible motive.

Smollett, who is gay, has said two masked men shouting racial and anti-gay slurs and “This is MAGA country!” beat him and looped a rope around his neck early on Jan. 29 before running away. He said they also poured some kind of chemical on him.

The police spokesman said that there is “no evidence to say that this is a hoax” and that Smollett “continues to be treated by police as a victim, not a suspect.”

The two suspects, identified only as Nigerian brothers, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo were picked up at Chicago O’Hare Airport on Wednesday on their return from Nigeria after police learned at least one worked on “Empire,” Guglielmi said.

He said he did not know what the man’s job was.

Guglielmi said police also searched the Chicago apartment where the men lived. But he said he had no information on what was found.

The police spokesman’s comments followed a furious 24 hours that included local media reports that the attack was a hoax.

Police said those reports were unconfirmed. And the producers of “Empire” disputed as “patently ridiculous” news reports that Smollett’s character was being written out of the show before the attack.

Smollett, 36, has said he was attacked while out getting food at a Subway sandwich shop in downtown Chicago.

Guglielmi said police have not found any surveillance video of an attack but continue to look. He said police also are contacting stores in the hope of finding out who bought the rope that was around Smollett’s neck.

In an interview with ABC News, the singer and actor said he didn’t remove the rope from around his neck before police arrived “because I wanted them to see.”

Smollett also said he initially refused to give police his cellphone because the device contained private content and phone numbers. He later gave detectives heavily redacted phone records that police have said are insufficient for an investigation.

Police are now treating the two brothers as suspects and not persons of interest but neither has been charged

Life Jail Sentences For Teenagers Who Murdered Lewis Blackman Following Confrontation At Birthday Party

Four teenager have been jailed for the murder of Lewis Blackman in February 2017 after a confrontation at a 16th birthday party in Kensington spiralled into a fatal street brawl.

Reporting restrictions were lifted today at court. Those jailed are:

Lawrence Nkunku, 17of Ward Lane, E9 was sentenced to life for murder with a minimum term of 18 years.

Thierry Edusei, 16 of Cannon Road, N17 was found guilty of manslaughter and jailed for 11 years.

Paul Glasgow, 17 of Warwick Grove, E5 was sentenced to life for murder with a minimum term of 18 years.

Demario Williams, 17, of Bath Road, Enfield N9 was sentenced to life for murder with a minimum term of 20 years.

Nkunku, Edusei, and Glasgow were convicted in October 2018. Their sentencings were timed to coincide with the sentencing of Williams.

Two other 18-year-old males [B] and [H] were found not guilty of murder.

The court heard that 19-year-old Lewis, of York Way in Camden, was fatally injured after he and a number of his associates attempted to gain access to a party that they had not been invited to in Kensington.

In the ensuing chaos Lewis, who was known to his friends as ‘Dotty’, was fatally stabbed when he was chased down in the street by a mob armed with weapons.

At around 03:20hrs on Sunday, 18 February two Met officers on patrol were responding to reports of a large number of vehicles in Logan Place, W8, following a nearby party, when they discovered a male suffering from stab injuries laying in the street.

The officers immediately administered first aid to Lewis prior to the arrival of the London Ambulance Service (LAS).

Despite the extensive efforts to save him, he was pronounced dead at the scene at 03:46hrs.

A post-mortem examination held on Monday, 19 February discovered that Lewis had suffered 13 stab wounds from various knives. Cause of death was recorded as stab wounds to the chest.

Detectives from the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command immediately began an investigation.

It was established that on the evening prior to Lewis’ death, a girl had rented out a property in Earls Court Road as the venue for her 16th birthday party.

She had drawn up a guest list of around 50 people, careful to invite people she knew from the Hackney area as she was aware of tensions between some of those invited and other males from Camden. The invite however was posted on social media.

The teenager and the majority of her guests were at the party from around 00:40hrs, at which point there were no issues.

Between 02:00hrs and 03:00hrs however, a group of uninvited men, including Lewis, arrived at the property and began trying to get in.

They were refused entry and the front door was closed; one of the guests was heard to say ‘there’s boys outside causing trouble’, at which point the door was forced open and Lewis’ group gained access.

A panic ensued in which many attendees fled the apartment via front door and bedroom in a bid to escape an altercation between Lewis’ group and a number of attendees which then spilled outside onto the street.

Witnesses described seeing a group of around 10 men being chased by a larger group of around 20; members of both parties were reported to have been wearing hooded clothing and to have been armed with weapons, including poles and knives.

Lewis was one of the 111 young people fatally shot or stabbed to death in London in 2018

ISIS Bride Made Her Choice So She Must Stay With Her Husband In Syria

So the parents of Shamima Begum the ISIS terrorist wife wants compassion for their daughter…. How much compassion did she show the innocent victims whose severed heads she regularly saw in buckets and walked past unfazed?

They claim she was young and did not know what she was doing when at 15 years, she carefully planned her travel, obtained tickets and visas, made her way to the airport and took at least two connecting flights to Syria to join her jihadi boyfriend whom she later married?

For too long, the attitude of the Brits has been to look the other way when kids run riot, grossly misbehave and cause havoc while making excuses of “young age”, “human rights” and “freedom of choice” for all kinds of bad behaviours and their usually grievous consequences.

It is time the UK government takes a firm stand against young people behaving badly and teach them while they can still learn, that every choice and every action has a reaction and price which must be paid for.
They need to learn to take responsibility for choices they make and not always expect others to clear up their mess.

London is full of grieving parents and siblings because some idiotic boys made the choice and decided to take out a knife and stick it straight into the heart of another boy. And while many offenders are successfully prosecuted and sentenced to jail, it is doubtful if the sentences are tough enough to be real deterrents cos many young boys are still willing to carry and use knives.

Enough pamby-pamby-slap-on-the wrist-he-is-only-a-child punishments and treatments dished out on gold rimmed china and golden charger plates.

Its time for harsh punishments commensurate to their heinous crimes.

Shamira Begum made the conscious choice to leave her parents house and join her evil satanic terrorist boyfriend – even after seeing horrendous images of his organisation’s attrocities on social media and the internet.

And not to forget the fact that even now that she is 19, has not shown an iota of remorse for her action or even feigned horror or trauma for the crimes of ISIS.

Her 1 and only reason for wanting to return to the UK is to get free NHS maternity treatment after losing 2 previous babies in the terrorist camp in Syria.

Who is to say that her plan is not to return to Syria as soon as her baby is born……or God forbid, carry out some serious ISIS assignments on the UK mainland.

Please leave her in Syria!
